Give a "Hand UP!" Community Outreach

For the Love of Mateo provides opportunities for donors to help support local organizations, families, underprivileged children/youth, nursing homes, homeless shelters, domestic abuse shelters, and so much more across the United States.

Growing up in a family with six children, Valerie Edwards, For The Love Of Mateo's (FTLOM) founder, knew that her family was blessed by many 'angels' who gave her own family a 'hand up' which helped them get through some of their families tough financial seasons. After Valerie started FTLOM, she knew that she wanted to eventually have an outreach through FTLOM that would allow her to pay that kindness forward by being able to help families in various local communities that were also in need of a hand up themselves. 

Although FTLOM has many wonderful supporters from all over the globe, many are from the United States. Because of this, FTLOM is happy to say that we have officially provided an opportunity to support Give A "Hand UP!" Community Outreach. Donations will be used to give back to local communities, specifically to those that are in need of a 'hand up'.


You're invited to donate any amount you wish plus either as a one-time payment or recurring. Make sure to indicate "Hand UP!" in the Notes box so we can make sure your generous donation correctly identified.

Just a Few Examples of How "FTLOM"  Gives a Hand Up Within Communities across the USA:

~ groceries, school supplies, school uniforms & school clothes for underprivileged families throughout local communities.  They have also purchased Christmas gifts &/or gift cards for families that could not have otherwise afforded to be able to provide this for their kids on their own.

~ supporting local nursing homes by putting together care packages for the nursing home residents, as well as gifting the nursing home staff a little something as a way to show them gratitude for all they do on a daily basis.

~ clothing for single mothers to be able to wear when they go on job interviews, as well as purchase new clothing for women living in domestic abuse shelters and who are in need of a fresh start.

~ financial support & grocery deliveries to children and families affected by cancer.
